19-Feb-17 Bowls Australia has been contacted after inquiries were made in regard to the use of the “Bowls Eye”. The “Bowls Eye” is a simple eye shaped transparent disc that can be used to accurately estimate the distance between the jack and the surrounding bowls.
Bowls Australia has advised that the “Bowls Eye” is approved to use during play to estimate which bowl or bowls are holding shot. However, the “Bowls Eye” is not to be used to measure the final result at the completion of the end. Please refer to Law 23.4 on page 36 of the Law Book.
The “Bowls Eye” is available for purchase from the Hobart Bowls Centre for $25.00
